Sweet Basil Vinaigrette

If you like pesto, I think you will really like this sweet basil vinaigrette. It’s bright and herby, a little garlicky but not too heavy, salty and sweet. So many complex flavors, right? But it is actually incredibly easy to make; only 8 basic pantry ingredients and 5 minutes to needed!
